BMW i8M Renderings

MAY 23 2015 BY ERIC LOVEDAY 8

These renderings are the work of South African automotive designer Idries Noah.

While BMW officially has revealed no plans to do an M version of the i8, we rather like this meaner-looking rendering.

It’s our belief that in due time BMW’s M division will tinker with the automaker’s i lineup of cars.  There are countless i3 and i8 owners seeking more performance from their rides, so why not give them what they want?

And we all know that hot rod electric cars draw a lot of attention.

Still Goofy Looking ., But A “Huge Improvement” over the Factory the Factory Abortion ..With The Fake Motor sound…

The nose looks like a turtle’s. Is that really the image for a high end sports car?

YEA !!! but it’s a BMW…..(Break My Wallet)It’s a fun Car! It Will Be more fun When the Warranty Runs Out & It starts To Break…. I love The Skinny Front tires,,. Great For Cornering…& That Precious Fake Engine Sound that comes through those Speakers …WOW!!! Go Ahead… Break My Wallet!

M for mundane perhaps…
The most appealing aspect of the i8 (regardless of whether you like it or hate it) is the fact the styling is very different from most other cars, an M version should be MORE unique, not less.

I like how people are bagging on BMW for fake engine sound. Is it not impressive that the were able to make a car do 0-60 with a 3 cylinder engine and electric motor hit that in 3.8 seconds. Check out motor trends reviews if your not familiar. Heck, check out Chevys new camaro and give it some of your hate, because they too have copied BMW and their car also is pumping out fake engine noise.

No, it’s not really impressive to get 0-60 in 3.8 seconds with a 3 cylinder engine. Tesla beats it with 0 cylinders.

Fake engine noise is stupid no matter where it’s found. BMW, Audi, Ford, GM, VW, Lexus, and Nissan all do it. Probably more than those, even. It’s just that BMW is already known as a brand for showy douchebags.

Don’t worry, we have plenty of hate for all the fakers, not just BMW.

Michael, Thank You. You said It Quite Nicely., Better Than I could have. ja

You know what’s more impressive than 3-cylinder engine/motor combo that does 0-60 in 3.8 seconds? A motor that does 0-60 in 3.1 seconds with ZERO cylinders! Any guesses as to what I’m referring to?
